Event Details

Behind the Cuisines

22 & 23 October 2021 | 2:00-4:30 PM | via Zoom and Facebook


The relationship between France and the Philippines has been continuously flourishing since the 16th century. And the Philippines have always been welcoming of French companies, businesses and enterprises, and they have created an active and healthy relationship in terms of developing their political, diplomatic, sociocultural, and most especially economic field. However, having been in the pandemic for more than a year, French and Philippine businesses alike have suffered economically and this case is more true for the food and beverage industry.


This case in point, the French Chamber of Commerce and Industry in the Philippines aims to conduct Behind the Cuisines, a (2) two-day event that envisions to support both French food retailers and distributors, small food owners, and Filipino farmers and small businesses who equally suffered since the onset of the pandemic.


The event will be divided as follows:


Day 1 (October 22, 2021) - The Changing Phases of the Food and Beverage Industry: Defining the New Food Normal


Day 2 (October 23, 2021) - Live Cooking: A Fusion of French and Filipino Flavors ft. Erwan Heussaff


On the whole, the French Chamber of Commerce and Industry in the Philippines envision both days of the event to be complementary to one another by firstly, imparting vital information regarding the current situation of the F&B industry here in the Philippines, and secondly, by providing the audience with ways on how they, in their own homes, can support local businesses affected by the pandemic while showcasing a peek into the French cuisine.


This event is FREE for CCI Members and Non-members.- 15% of the total revenue for this event will be donated to our partner beneficiary: AGREA
